Re: Help with Firewall Configuration

All installed apps cannot be blocked whether using inbound and outbound rules in the defender firewall. I tried many apps with same result. The old McAfee Firewall was working OK

I think there was other steps like ip address, port number,  in the defender firewall that are not easy to detect for any user. These were automatically detected in the old McAfee firewall

Re: Help with Firewall Configuration


The new firewall is useless.  I have another thread about this and the moderator says it is now the new system.  Time to ditch McAfee as their new firewall is not a firewall at all.  It is all a joke.  I have already gotten a trojen on my PC because of it.
